Big Gig is an unprecedented partnership between a motivated group of municipalities, universities, and organizations in Maine's Penobscot River Valley. We've been working with local innovators and entrepreneurs since 2012 to create a supportive network and to bring positive change and economic growth to our communities.
We get together every other month for a FREE Big Gig Pitch Off event, which is in a different town or location each time. Folks network, drink, nosh on fresh appetizers, and enjoy a pitch-off between three innovators/entrepreneurs competing for a cash prize.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
1. Apply to pitch your product/company idea at our Big Gig Pitch-Off
2. Applicants then pitch their business/idea to our Steering Committee at our Little Gig one week before the Big Gig event. At the end of Little Gig, the Steering Committee chooses the top 3 pitchers to move onto the Big Gig event the following week.
3. During the Big Gig Pitch Off, the three entrepreneurs pitch their business or business idea to a panel of friendly judges and attendees. The judges and attendees then vote for their favorite entrepreneur, who receives a $500 cash prize.
5. Each of the the winners from the three regular season Pitch Offs then have the opportunity to pitch in the Big Gig Finale for a chance to win $5000.
